Title:Noteworthy Practice - Standard 22 - Michigan
Tool/Process Description:
As part of our self-study for our accreditation, we invited our own student body to perform their own self-study.  Associate Dean Mueller arranged a meeting between students and himself to explain the accreditation process.  Students were very interested to learn about accreditation, and obviously were motivated to help with accreditation (they want to attend an accredited school).  Approximately 60 students attended the meeting. All ACPE Standards were show to them, but not all of them were of direct interest to the students.  However, many of the standards relating to student life, curriculum, resources, etc were of great interest.  Students broke into groups of 3-4 and chose the standards of greatest interest to them and were instructed to write their own self study.  Provisos given to the students included the assurance that they would not be edited for content, but that we wanted an honest appraisal of their standard including points of pride and areas requiring improvement.  Students were given the same page limit that our own faculty self study had.  Students met informally with students to get the opinions of their peers, and later presented their reports formally to the student body. to our surprise in some cases it seemed like they were not critical enough in their self-study, but in the great majority of cases, their findings mirrored that of the faculty.  In a few cases, their criticque informed our own faculty self study final document.  The student self study was compiled by Dr. Mueller and was bound separately and sent to ACPE.  Content was not edited.  The 2011 University of Michigan Student Self Report is attached to this report.
